RCR promotes safety inside and outside the company: two defibrillators have been installed, one available to the citizens of Colle di Val d'Elsa

“Doing good for people and the environment is good for business”, this is the inspiring principle of RCR Cristalleria Italiana's choices and which leads to concrete facts for the well-being of its employees and the entire community of Colle di Val d'Elsa . The latest news concerns safety and health protection, in fact two semi-automatic external defibrillators (AED) have just been installed at its headquarters. The first defibrillator was installed within the company in a point crossed daily by hundreds of employees, to ensure prompt intervention in the event of a cardiac emergency. The second defibrillator, however, was positioned outside, in front of the reception, in a strategic position accessible to all. The decision to make the defibrillator available to the entire community responds to RCR's desire to actively contribute to the safety of the area, offering a life-saving tool in a busy residential area which hosts numerous activities, including bars, restaurants, a sports field and tennis courts.

“The installation of the defibrillators is a significant step in our ongoing commitment to the safety and well-being of both our employees and the local community,” said Roberto Pierucci, CEO of RCR Cristalleria Italiana. “We firmly believe that safety is an essential value and we are proud to be able to offer a concrete contribution to the protection of human life”.

Every year, in Italy, around 57,000 people suffer from cardiac arrest and the use of a defibrillator quickly significantly reduces short- and long-term mortality. Thanks to law n° 120 of 2001, anyone who knows how to use the semi-automatic defibrillator can intervene by restoring the heart rhythm, safely, while waiting for help, reducing the percentage of adverse cases.
RCR Cristalleria Italiana thus continues to prove itself as a cutting-edge company, not only for the quality of its products, but also for its attention to people and the territory in which it operates. This initiative adds to a series of measures already in place to ensure a safe and sustainable working environment, reiterating the central role of corporate social responsibility in RCR's corporate strategies.

AGENDA 2030

AGENDA 2030

DOING GOOD FOR PEOPLE AND THE ENVIRONMENT IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS

Starting from this key concept, which is now part of the RCR DNA, all our commitment to achieving an even greater objective that we have set ourselves as belonging to a community is highlighted.
This goal is called AGENDA 2030.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is an action program signed on 25 September 2015 in New York by the governments of 193 UN member countries, including Italy. The final document, adopted at the end of the Summit, is based on five key concepts, represented by the 5 "Ps":

1. People. Eliminate hunger and poverty in all its forms, guarantee dignity and equality.

2. Prosperity. Ensuring prosperous and full lives, ensuring prosperous and full lives in harmony with nature.

3. Peace. Promote peaceful, just and inclusive societies.
4. Partnerships. Implement the Agenda through strong partnerships.

5. Planet. Protect the planet's natural resources and climate for future generations.

The global agenda also defines the 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by 2030, divided into 169 targets, to be followed to lead us towards a more sustainable path.
The 2030 Agenda brings with it a great innovation to which our company feels particularly linked: for the first time a clear judgment is expressed on the unsustainability of the current development model, not only on an environmental level, but also on an economic one and social, thus definitively overcoming the idea that sustainability is solely an environmental issue and affirming an integrated vision of the different dimensions of development.

Here are the 17 sustainable development goals:

1. End all forms of poverty in the world;

2. End hunger, achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture;

3. Ensure health and well-being for all at all ages;

4. Provide quality, equitable and inclusive education and lifelong learning opportunities for all;

5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls;

6. Guarantee the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation facilities for all;

7. Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy systems for all;

8. Encourage long-lasting, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all;

9. Build a resilient infrastructure and promote innovation and fair, responsible and sustainable industrialization;

10. Reduce inequality between and within nations;

11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, durable and sustainable;

12. Guarantee sustainable production and consumption models;

13. Promote actions, at all levels, to combat climate change;

14. Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development;

15. Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of the Earth's ecosystem, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation and halt the loss of biological diversity;

16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, guarantee access to justice for all and create effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels;

17. Strengthen implementation tools and renew the global partnership for sustainable development.

Important goals where everyone can contribute significantly!
